AMMAN — The Social Development Ministry and the Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding to improve health and safety practices in care centres for the elderly and people with disabilities.

Social Development Minister Reem Abu Hassan said the memo seeks to improve the monitoring of care centres affiliated with the ministry, especially after a number of children from Al Hussein Social Institution contracted rotavirus.

Under the agreement, the JFDA will raise care centre workers’ health and safety awareness and prepare pamphlets to this effect.
